Holy demo-dogs, it's official: Netflix just renewed Stranger Things for Season 3 so you'll be seeing a whole lot more of Eleven, Steve Harrington, and the gang. No word yet on when the new season will premiere or what exactly to expect, but we could be streaming Season 3 as early as January 2019 — just a little over a year away. Fingers crossed!
Prince Harry + Meghan Markle
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry made their first royal outing as an engaged couple and they looked just as cute and as in love as ever.
